RTI joins the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC)
Published: 9 March 2020 - Christian Lynn
RTI joins leading OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and semiconductor companies in their collaborative effort to accelerate the delivery of safe and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale, collaborating with the AVCC to define the architecture to develop and run highly-autonomous vehicles, and support development phases from research to production.
This comes as a result of increased demand for technological innovation into the realm of automotive autonomy. This requires the availability of a common architecture that these systems can be based on, regardless of the manufacturer, hardware or software selected. In mid 2019, industry leaders united to form the AVCC to help solve the challenge of deploying safe self-driving vehicles. The AVCC’s primary purpose is to develop a computing platform, designed specifically to move today’s prototype systems to deployment at scale. The group will also develop the requirements for software connectivity interfaces for each building block in an autonomous vehicle.
“Autonomous vehicles are highly complex systems. Manufacturers need to ensure their systems can operate in diverse real-time environments, meet safety and security requirements, scale and interoperate within all autonomous vehicle systems,” said Bob Leigh, senior director of market development of autonomous systems at RTI: “We’re looking forward to actively collaborating with the AVCC and fellow industry leaders to tackle these technological challenges facing the higher levels of autonomous operation.”
